The Department of Ancient Mediterranean & Near Eastern Studies and Green College are delighted to offer a free concert of ancient music, played on an authentically reconstructed ancient Greek lyre. This performance is courtesy of a professional musician (Theodore Koumartzis) and composer (Evagoras Bekiaris) traveling from Greece to Vancouver. Employed by several scholars and masters of ancient music for international performances, lyres by Luthieros are designed and hand-crafted to replicate genuine ancient instruments, based on archaeological and visual evidence from antiquity.
A select number of attendees will be given the opportunity to handle and even play the lyre. If this opportunity is of interest to you, please let organizers know.
This Green College Special Event is part of Music and Transformation in the Platonic Tradition, a workshop organized by Ancient Mediterranean and Near Eastern Studies.
